“The Sims 3″ is a great game, I’ve been a fan of The Sims since the very beginning when it was released in 2000, it became a smash hit that went on to occupy top spots on computer-game best-seller lists for years to come, along with a good number of expansion packs and its in-depth sequel, The Sims 2.
A few days ago The Sims 3 was released officially , there was so much waiting for this third chapter, and now I understand why?
I’ve bought the The Sims 3 Collector’s Edition through Amazon ,since eastore website in my country is still showing Sims2 stuff and there is no sign of Sims 3.
I have been playing it constantly at least 4 hours a day and I can tell you that it is great, nothing to do with The Sims 2 .Unlike the transition between the original and sequel, Sims 3 is not offering upgraded graphics. Instead of utilizing the latest DirectX 10 graphics, EA decided to take the game in a whole new direction and allow players to move their Sim from lot to lot, all with virtually no load time.
I’m not a benchmark expert,but what I know is that an un-hindered copy of Sims 2 (no mods, no expansions) and an un-hindered copy of Sims 3 have about the same initial load speed. The load speeds between lots is fairly fast.
Coming to Mods the modding community, has found ways to hack into the game and change the gameplay. Thank you modders!
